BCS Championship

So what do y'all think about USC and OU going to the championship game? I think Auburn is getting left out. All three teams undefeated in some great conferences. I think something needs to be done about the BCS. All three teams are well deserving but only two get a shot at national title. What do y'all think?

The entire BCS is total load of crap..its the most disorganized, unreliable, worthless way to rank teams anybody has ever come up with. It constantly leaves teams out every year that deserve a shot a higer bowl game or even the championship game.

I am glad to see however , the OU and USC are going at it. Go OU !!!! but teams like auburn and cal, just get left behind every year.

Plain and simple, we need a freekin playoff. everybody else uses one, why cant the NCAA get its head out of its arse. its a constant battle every year with this. BUT, they never will, there is too many bowl games with too much money involved to ever change the system to anything real and desent..

One of the voters is a Huntsville Times columnist, and he voted Auburn 3rd.

Still, to go 12-0 and NOT go to the championship game... something is wrong with that.

I think the system works and they need to quit messing with it. The whole season is a playoff and they removed SOS. What they need to do is put MORE emphasis on SOS. . that way you'll see some crazy nonconference matchups during regular season play. . OU/Miami, USC/Texas, etc.

The universities stand to lose too much money with a playoff system, it can't, and won't happen.

Also, they need to eliminate pre-season polls all together.

Tuberville counted on the fact that the SEC would be their normal selves, and they weren't. So, the fact that he scheduled marshmellows for his nonconference (Citadel and a D2 school?!?!?) schedule came back to bite him.

I've always said if you lose a game, you have no right to bitch. . such as USC last year. However, this year I do feel sorry for Auburn, it's not right, but it is what it is. All the coaches agreed to the system we have.

There is still a shot for Auburn to get a split championship.

Oklahoma 31
USC 10

ur right, it will never happen..there is countless millions at stake for every bowl game, and thats a huge money maker for them. Still though, why not use the bowl games, allbeit, not so many of them, for a playoff system somehow and let the winners advance to a championship series ?

You don't need a playoff every year. Last year, a plus 1 would have worked. The year before and before and before, it wasn't needed.

With an 8 team playoff, you're still going to have people arguing.

So, that's why I say put more emphasis on strength of schedule. The whole season counts. . That's why you have people glued to the tv on Saturdays, and not really giving a **** about Sundays until the playoffs start.

USC turned down a home game with Fresno State this year, and Auburn lost Bowling Green to us b/c they wouldn't put up the extra $100,000. OU had a D2 school on the schedule and everyone was freaking out. Our athletic director worked overtime to fix that, and did. Bowling Green, who was the 3rd most productive offense in the nation last year, Oregon (Pac 10), and Houston. Houston's no gem, but they're a hell of a lot better than the Citadel and D2 school.

USC was a bs call from not even going to Miami. Did you see the game on Saturday? Bush fumbled and it was a TD the other way for UCLA, but the refs called it down. It was the worst call I've seen all year, hands down, and that's saying a lot. lol So, instead, USC kicked a field goal which. So, that call created a 10 point deficit.

There will always be people who argue about it, so there's no pleasing everyone. and i agree strength of schedule should be a bigger part of it. but then, what difference does it make how many points you win by, a win is a win though right?! now i dont know quite as much about college football in terms of the bcs as many others do..but from what i understand, that plays a fairly significant part, does it not ?

To a point. . I think the max is 35.

Bumblebee, if Auburn was so good they would have made a real schedule instead of playing Citadel, a division two school, and playing Bama tight when they needed to make a statement. All of OU's wins over ranked teams have been away.

Auburn better worry about Va Tech, forget about beating OU. They didn't get left out, NOBODY has them higher than 3. They should, however, be playing Utah, and not VaTech.

And for what it's worth, I wasn't bitching when we were left out in 01 and 02. . you make your own bed.

VA tech def. showed out in the ACC championship game. Played awesome. It just looks funny
USC and OU both 12-0
Sugar bowl Auburn also 12-0 against VA tech 10-2
Fiesta bowl Utah 11-0 against Pitt 8-3
Rose bowl Texas 10-1 against Mich. 9-2
I understand that there is a lot to the points of BCS but I thought that just looked kinda funny

Here's the games I'd *like* to see.

Cal - Texas
Auburn - Utah
Michigan - Va Tech

The reason I said Auburn Utah is b/c Utah is also undefeated. I said Cal vs Texas b/c they are both the biggest claim to faim for USC and OU. Then, Michigan vs Va Tech because it'd be a nice ACC/Big 10 match up.

Actually, Louisville vs Utah would be a good game too.

But, the automatic Big East bid (goes away after next year I think?) has it completely screwed up.

USC had the inside track because of what happened LAST year. Preseason rankings mattered too much here. If Auburn was preseason #1 they would be in the championship. If OU started out #1, we would be talking about USC or Auburn for the 2nd spot. it was said all season "you cant drop a team if they dont lose." how about if theyre not as good? but that wasnt ever an option, close game or not. Lets just let the preseason #1 play all thier games first, so if they go undefeated everyone else can pack it in and hope for next year.

yeah... im gonna watch. OU, this LSU fan is cheering for you.

preason doesn't count in any other sport, ( that I know of) so why should it have any bearing on the rankings..why not play the first game, and go from there. makes too much sense I know, with the complicated BCS system.

Notre Dame is going to the Big East next year I think, or is it ACC? I can't remember. They should be in the Big 10, but they're not going to be.

JK DILLA, thanks man. . I was at that game last year. 200,000 drunken rednecks from OU and LSU on Bourbon Street got real interesting in a hurry. lmao
